Deja-vu? Come on, Great America is being treated unfair. They were the first ones to come up with the super-invertigo. This could have debuted a lot better if there was only one. I mean Six Flags is already getting enough atttention. Everyone was talking about great america's Super Invertigo until now because magic mountain announced having one. It's unAIR TO Great America. Why does Magic Mountain always have to have the tallest, best, fasset and most roller coasters?

What are the stats on SFGAm's super Invertigo? Are they different? I did not know the official announcement was made.

"X" marks the spot in 2001!

It's going to be about 20 ft. shorter than the Magic Mountain version. Other than that, they should be identical.

What's so bad about SFMM. I think that you guys should chill out and just focus on what you're getting and not some other park. This is a business and they feel that they can make more money by putting their rides into SFMM.

SFGAm is my home park and i am glad to get 2 coasters, S:Ue gets good reviews and the Super Invertigo should be good, at least we are getting a new Super Invetigo even though it is 20 feet shorter than MM. How can you complain about 2 new coasters.

I'm kinda p.o.'ed myself. While SFMM got Goliath last year, and Deja Vu, and "X" next year, SFoG is only getting a freefall tower. Big Whoopie. I can understand the reasoning behind the idea of adding just enough rides to take the crown away from someone else, but they are pushing the other parks to the back burner. SFoG is the only thing within a reasonable drive for a lot of people in this area, and without something decent to go over there for, I see no point in it. Six Flags want to complain about low attendance figures at SFoG, but it's there own fault. The saying goes "If you build it, they will come". No wonder nobody goes there. They haven't built anything worth going over there for!

Did you ever notice that the people who bash SFMM usually have never been to the park? Hmm, there must be a connection.

Think about it this way, SFMM makes more than 3 times as much profit as ANY OTHER PARK in the Six Flags chain. Now think, why would they put more coasters here than anywhere else? Another mind-boggler.

Honestly people, I know it's off season (for most of you, grr) but go eat christmas cookies and spend time with your family or something!

P.S. Josh, if you think SFoG has nothing worth going for, you really need to ride the eternal Mindbender, the insane Georgia Cyclone, the furious turns of Georgia Scorcher, etc, etc... *** This post was edited by Millennium Force on 12/23/2000. ***

i only feel bad for coasterphobics

i hate to say this, but is the recent outbreak of new coasters (praise the heavens) causing a horrible spoiling of all of you? i also feel bad for you, sfga2001, because i get the impression you couldn't bring yourself to enjoy a park like Kennywood, Knoebel's, Parc Asterix, Silverwood, Knott's, or Holiday World; the true gems of the amusement industry.

bah humbug!

Okay, I will admit, it might not be the wisest choice ecoomically, it would be wise to develope some other parks with no (meteopher) coasters like Elitch Gardens and Kentucky Kingdom. But I think that they should definately develop SFGadv and SFA (I can't help it I'm partial).

What's going to happen when the economy dies, and people stay home a little more often, and we get back to the time when ALL parks install new coasters at the rate of SFEG? I think we'll learn a new appreciation for when we had it so good.

I just feel that SFGAm, being my home park, should deserve more recognition than it gets. I am thankful that I live next to Great America, and not Elitch Gardens or something, but I still think that we are being somewhat mistreated. Everyone wants their homepark to be recognized, appreciated, and awed at. It's getting to the point of being like a football rivalry (CP vs. MM) in terms of intensity. When I got word of SFGAm's new inverigo, I was pretty excited. Then all of a sudden, the mountain builds their own invertigo a couple of feet taller, and in the comming spring, when you say the words: super invertigo, Deja Vu will come to mind, and ours will just be left out. I can see it now, I'm reading the list of top steel roller coasters. Deja Vu is number 40 or something, and GAm's will be 97. Like what happened with our Arrow mega-loopers. Shockwave was built first, has no trim brakes, and I hear is much smoother than it's sibling in California, yet which one do you see more often on those Discovery Channel TV shows? Viper. Anyways, I'd just like the other 16 or so Six Flags parks be known and have their chance in the spotlight.

Magic Mountain probably gets more visitors than Great America thats why they build more.

My home park is SFMW, what do you ever here of that park? But do I care? Less recognition means shorter lines for me. Don't get so carried away by these other parks getting the spotlight, they also have to carry the backlash of what comes with that. How many times do you hare people bashing SFMM and CP, mostly out of jealousy and stupidity? Just allow your park to maintain it's local charm, and wonderful rides, and very good reputation. The attention will come, but do you really want that? Think about it.

Does it really matter to you that much!? Be glad you live by SFGAm, arguably the best SF park. I dont think the extra 20 feet or so will matter all that much. Also, I would be glad that we have Raging Bull and not a Goliath-type hyper (personal preference maybe). I dont want to sound like a SFGAm salesman here, but I dont see why you are so mad about the extra 20feet.

MillenniumForce, you said that, "...SFMM makes more than 3 times as much profit as ANY OTHER PARK in the Six Flags chain." can you please tell me where you got that information because I HIGHLY doubt that is true. Last I checked, SFGAd had a higher attendance than SFMM (correct me if I'm wrong). But you are no the right track, the more money a park makes, the more rides they are going to build.

You guys are right. I guess I am getting kind of spoiled with so many new coasters being built. Sorry.

Hmmm.....Basically all I want is for SFGAm to get it's two minutes of fame on one of those TV shows, so I can say to myself "Hey that's where me and my friends......"

I am not trying to get people to feel sorry for SFGAm or anything and that we deserve better. I feel that an impulse and an invertigo are just what the park needs. I don't know much about money, but I'd think that 3 coasters at 3 parks would bring in more dough and please more people than giving 3 coasters to Magic Mountain. It isn't that I don't like the mountain or anything. I'd love to go there when I get the chance and am happy for those thrillseekers in Los Angeles, but I still firmly believe that they are getting a whole lot. *** This post was edited by Krazy on 12/23/2000. ***

Yes, I do see what you mean now. I know whenever I watch one of the shows on discovery Channel or whatnot I'm always hoping to see SFGAm even mentioned, but it rarley happens. Oh well.

Its SFoT's 40th (the FIRST six flags park) and they are only getting Titan, used flat rides and some inprovements. I know that all this is great but, I mean, SFOT did start it ALL. Come on Six Flags - wise up!
